“There are many processes involved including sensitisation of pilgrims most of whom are first timers, collection of monies which would be deposited to the Central Bank before it would pass through some other processes and finally to Saudi Arabia where it would be converted to Riyal (Saudi Arabia currency). Then accommodation, transportation and other processes would be concluded,” he said. (Daily Trust)
